McCain was trying to rob off from the eyes of crowd to spend his time playing a poker round in the meeting but couldn’t fool a reporter’s eye who caught him playing.

But McCain tries to manage up his verdict about the video captured by the reporter and says that the dollars shown are fake. Committee people were shocked to see the irrelevant video that could throw in attention of people on an important decision and the discussion that was in the background. The matter heating up was of intervention of the military in the in the present scenario of Syrian Civil war.  The committees speak up those acts of powerful congress leader sets an example to the nation.
